ACTIVATE is billed as a “Church Revitalization Program.” At first glance you may think that it does not apply to the church you attend or serve at. There may also be a haunting feeling that if your church participates in the program, “people” might get the idea that your church is struggling and in need of revitalization. That thought comes in direct conflict with our pride.The TRUTH is, ACTIVATE is a self-evaluation system that identified the weaknesses and strengths of Central, Prescott. This allowed us to assemble a team representing each people group of our church with the express purpose of formulating recommendations to the church body that would maintain our strengths, and strengthen our weaknesses.The benefits thus far have been a stronger bond of unity among the membership, and a deeper trust factor between the membership, along with the pastor and staff. Across the board, we’ve seen an increase in the number of members involved in the work of the ministry. It’s also given us the ability to “close the back door” and aid visitors in becoming active participants. The icing on the cake is the sweet, sweet spirit that accompanies our services each week.ACTIVATE – it’s worth a second look!
